We have, by yesterday's mail, London

is, thai very little'reliance ought to be
placed on the rumors of a Coalition be-

Again, in tie very letter of the 13th of Jul ,
1814, dated from New-York, in part of which
tlie punctumal ion is said to hIve been erroneous,
the Commodore speaks explicitly of the dt!pli-
city of Captain ilillyar, .and expressly states,
ha et when. ll ir, in companyy with Captai
Tucker, visited ilim on shore, he asked him it'
hi- iITt-'nclrt. o ---dprr-t.-d the neutrality of tihe

that al litishi Navat Officers are dishonorable,
and illyar oie among the least so-or has any
thing occurred to induce him to refcait the de-
clarations he officially made inii 1814 ; dechla-
tions directly at war with that recently made in
the weekly y .Register ? .
In answer to the Richmond Enquirer of
the 3d inst. Captain Porter replies, that
he has seen no cause to recant any decia-
i-ations he officially made in 181'4
After the-opinions'he had publicly ex-
pressed of the character of British na-val
oTlccrs generally, he did not deem it ne-
cessary to say whether he intended it as
a compliment or as a reproach, to rank
Coin. Hillyar as one of the mroost honor-
able among them .
Captain P. takes this opportunity to
remark, that he has (since the publication
of his letter in Niles' Register) been in-
formed, that the error in pulctuation com-
plained of, was promptly corrected by the
Editors of. the National Intelligencer,*
and that it did not originate with them,
but in the clerk who -copied his official
letter for their paper '
[' As will appear on referring to the National
Ihtelligcncer of July 25, 1814.]

city from Havena, n diZ in this
ment made by someAmericans, in o-
linemennt at that police, with a request that
it might be published, in the hope that
government n.ay afford them relief.
The statement is signed by Peter An-
kar, who it appears belongs at Boston,
but sailed last in the Mary from Rich-
mond for St. Croix. At this place he got
charge of a West India schooner, and was
prosecuting successful voyages from.one
Island to another, when his owner per-
suaded hinm to engage as second officer of
a privateer, under captain Asa Hosmer.
In this new employment they soon made
a prize of a slave vessel from Africa,
with which they proceeded off St. Jago
de Cuba, for the purpose of ransoming it
as agreed with the owners. While en-
gaged in this negotiation the command-
ant scnt out a vessel of superior force,
aiad captured them.
The whole crew, in which there were
8 Americans, were thrown into prison,
and confined in irons for 5 months, in
separate apartments,with only a plate-full
of rice every 24 hours to subsist upon.
Com. Taylor had been off the place, and
demanded their exchange, which the go-
vernor refused. They were then march-
ed almost naked and barefooted to Ha-
vana, suffering on the way hunger, thirst,
and inhuman treatment from the soldiers
who guarded them. Since their impris-
onment at Havana, a British man of war
has been at that port, and obtained the
release of such of their companions as
were British subjects. They have sent
a representation to government, and a
petition for relief, but do not know that it
reached the United States. They hope
the government will demand their release,
and, if they have ac:ed wrong, punish
them at home.

TO THE EDITORS,.
Gentlemen-The reply of A Columbian
to my note of the 3d inst. did not pass me
unobserved, nor was it my intention to
suffer his lame and contradictory expla-
nation to cover his retreat..; but the pres-
sure of other duties did not allow me to
notice him as promptly as I intended, or
even at this time, had not the following
article from a Richmond paper fallen into
my hands, which, as it embraces all I
had intended to say on the subject, suits
my purpose, and I will thank you to
give it a place in the Intelligencer.

Some weeks ago an essay appeared in the
National Intelligencer, under the signature of
". Cohunbian," affirming that the bravest,
thle finest, the most resolute, and the most vir-
tuotis, are fi3 ing from a!l quarters to join Mc-
Gregwo's standard;" that the writer had the
most pleasing intelligence," viz. that General
McGregor has man army of 1500, and 2000 more
ready to join him"-alul of tiem iewats ofsteel-
in bodies of liveoak."
Another writer in the same paper of the 3d
inst. comes forward to "demand of A Colurnm-
bian'his authority for 'statements which evemss
have proved totally unfounded, and which were
calculated to impose upon the public in a matter
interesting to private feelings, and important to
"A Columbian," .thus rptighly challenged,
comes out with' the following explanation:
Faur hundred, who were expected in the,
Morgiana, and many others, were directed to
the South, being'found unnecessary at Amelia,
where thle vanguard were deemed more than
suffticentto repel any attacks that the Dons, or
rather the Undones, were expected to make ;.
and which subsequent events completely veri-
fied. The remainder, therefore, of the hearts
of steel, in bodies of live oak, have gone South,
where they, will be hereafter heard of, in the
bulletins.of. the successes of the Pal-tots ; andt
the apparent want of uanirnity and concert in.

with a bold assertion, that he really had 1500

comes to pass that these men nl-ver were with

viz to South Anmerica ? The explanation might
have served fur the "2000 more" who were
S ready tu join him,' butnot the 1500 who were
actually with him.
Again he is at war with the truth. So foar
from having 1500 troops at any one time, Mc-
Gregor never had with him as many as 100.
Again 'so far from expectilig 2000 Imen, he:
